“Dune” captures audiences’ anticipation, brilliant filmography

Josiah Anderson November 8, 2021
Adapted from Frank Herbert’s 1965 novel series, Dune (2021), directed by Denis Villeneuve, follows the life of teenager Paul Atreides (Timothee Chalamet) as he grows from an ambitious adolescent to a smart and swift leader, capable of changing the tides of reality. “Dune” succeeds in telling a detailed and intriguing story through a multitude of film techniques and brilliant scripting. The only complaint was perhaps its finish. The film ended in the middle of the story, giving way to a possible second part which has not yet been officially confirmed.

Marvel begins phase four, diversifying in villain development

Josiah Anderson October 18, 2021
Kevin Feige’s Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) started in 2008 with the first “Iron Man” movie, taking the box office by storm and not letting up, even through 2021. The journey was long, moving from cinema screen, to home TV as the MCU migrated from phase one to phase four of content production. Up until the fourth phase, villains in the MCU had been highly one dimensional and incredibly stereotypical, with a few key exceptions. But with the introduction of Marvel TV shows came increasingly complex villains, ranging from prior heroes to groups of average people fighting for what they believe to be right. The myriad of villains ultimately contributes to a far more diverse plot and creates characters which capture the hearts and minds of the viewers.
